Best Experience”

Although this hostel located in Long Island City, but worry not it is just few stations away from Manhattan. I arrived around 6am in the morning and the hostel offers a towel and I can take a shower in the second floor! They have no breakfast service but there is a pantry available where you can cook or re-heat your foods. Refrigerator also available. The room itself was pretty good, clean, Air-con works perfectly fine, and although I was staying in 4 bunk beds per room, there's still a lot of room to move. The receptionist also offers free padlock for me to put my stuff in the room :) Ah, they also have laundry machine and drying machine (put $2.5 usd for each machine, detergent is not provided tho) which it was something that I need after few days of travelling with dirty clothes occupying my luggage. Overall this is a very nice experience with Local Hostel NYC :)

Quite expensive, but totally worth it. Located reasonably close to Manhattan (you'll still need to take a subway to get to Manhattan, 15-minute trip). Staffs are nice and the place is clean. Tourist-friendly (close to groceries, etc.). There's a nice balcony to hang around and see NYC. Will definitely stay again if I come to NYC.

Reasonable Acommodation in NY”

If you are a solo traveler, this hostel is the best choice. I made so many friends in this hostel. The staffs are also kind. Acommodation fee in NY is insane. I think this hostel has reasonable price compared to other hotel. Of course, it is shared room. But I spent very amazing time in this hostel.

Decent place for a room in New York”

The place wasn't that bad. The hostel is clean, but there was a bunch of fruit flies everywhere because other guests left their food and trash in the kitchen, and in other places instead of putting it in the trashcan. The hostel has a policy where guests need to clean up after themselves, but if they don't then the trash piles, which then attracts bugs. The bunk beds were short for me. I am 6'4" and I had to lay diagonal on the bed to fit. Otherwise it wasn't that bad. If your roommates are dirty and nasty, it can be a nightmare since their are two bunk beds and the rooms are small. Smells will linger in the room and will make you feel nauseous.
